LA GRANGE – If you want to catch rainbow trout , kokanee salmon and king salmon now at Don Pedro , you need to fish deep . “ The surface water temperature is 80 to 82 degrees , so the trout are hitting best at 45 to 70 feet deep and the kokanee are down at 90 to 120 feet deep ,” said Monte Smith of Gold Country Sportfishing . “ On my latest trip two anglers caught limits of rainbows in the 13 to 16 inch range while trolling with homemade spoons in Middle Bay .” On his previous trip on Don Pedro , a dad took his two boys out went trolling with Smith . “ They all had plenty of turns reeling in fish ,” said Smith . “ The first fish of the day was a bass that we caught on the drop . They ended up with 8 kokanee , 1 three-pound king and five rainbows , and seven fish lost .” Information : ( 209 ) 581-4734 . Alpine Lake Trout : While on vacation with his family , Smith said he saw bank anglers catching rainbows while tossing out Power Bait , nightcrawlers and other offerings at this gorgeous Ebbetts Pass region lake . The boat ramp is now out of the water .

spoons in red / gold and red dot frog and still getting limits . Troll them between Shrimp Island and Wildcat Point in 45 feet of water at 22-25 on the down riggers or with 4 colors of leadcore line at about 2.0 mph . The cooler weather has brought morning temperatures down to the high 30 ’ s and low 40 ’ s , which in turn is cooling the waters of the lake . This will make the fishing better as fall starts to come our way . I expect to be back in operation Labor Day weekend if conditions allow . Feel free to give me a call and I will give you any information I can . - Tim Noxon , 916-201-4648
